A prototype rocket for a massive reusable vehicle SpaceX is designing to fly people to the moon and Mars took off from a launching stand in South Texas on Tuesday, flew to a height of roughly 500 feet, then made a controlled descent to a nearby landing pad.

I chose this article because it's exciting to think about the scale of this spacecraft! It's huge, and it's goal is to take people and equipment to the Moon and Mars!

This is just a small step of what SpaceX's plan is. I watched this live as I do many of the SpaceX launches. The recent Demo-2 launch with Bob and Doug was amazing to witness because of the historical significance it might someday be. My goal in life is to actually to work as an Aerospace Engineer with the Starship program SpaceX has in Boca Chica. It might be a longshot but I'll definitely shoot for it.

There's a good documentary on Netflix. Called Mars. It's based a lot on Musk's plans.
